ISO 14001 Certificate Presentation

The official presentation of our ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management certificate has taken place at our Airtec aerated block facility in Brompton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire.

The certificate was presented by Dawn Robertson and Phil Curry of the BBA (British Board of Agrément) to Thomas Armstrong’s Technical Manager and Management Systems coordinator John Mason.
The management system was assessed and certified by the BBA and represents their very first ISO 14001 award. The BBA are fully UKAS approved to assess and award ISO 14001 certification in addition to other management systems.
We are delighted to receive this award after a great deal of hard work and dedication by the whole team here and especially so as we are BBA’s very first ISO 14001 client. The ISO 14001 Management System is not only the most recognised and widely respected of the various systems available, it is also one of the toughest to achieve and extremely robust in its design. Achieving this award is simply the beginning of a process of continual improvement in our environmental performance.

The state of the art Airtec facility utilises bespoke energy-saving manufacturing techniques throughout the process as well as 80% recycled raw materials which go into making thermally superior products. This award is confirmation by outside experts that we have in place a process which meets the rigorous requirements of this international standard. Furthermore, we have approached the design of our processes and systems to exceed the minimum requirements of this standard in order to operate an exemplary environmentally friendly process.
As a company, we recognise the importance of our commitment to environmental protection and we are currently undertaking a programme of rolling out this system to all of our sites in the Concrete Blocks Ltd division and to other parts of the Thomas Armstrong Group in due course.
To further strengthen our business, we are adopting an integrated management system approach across the group which will accommodate not only Environmental management but also Quality Assurance and Health and Safety management.
